Why thank you! My computer's like a choirboy, buggered for a few days, so you've helped me out.

I think I was f**king lucky to scrape a draw, to be honest - I thought my Godfather sketch was pretty shit, and easily outclassed by some strong stuff Laughing out loud Just goes to show you can never predict what will work and what won't.

It's always interesting and surprising how people react. A month or so ago I got one of my biggest ever laughs for the shitty line, 'I enjoyed Katy Perry's last video. As soon as it finished, I pressed Rewind with my free hand.' I thought it was a crap line but I heard a big laugh. More wanking jokes then...?

Hmmm. Not only is that a long long way from your best line, but it doesn't even seem very likely - what were you watching it on, VHS?

Moral: other people are stupid, but it still feels good to make them laugh Laughing out loud Whistling nnocently

That's my point. Sometimes lines you love get ignored, shitty stuff gets laughed at. Still...
One of the reasons (I think) is when you like a line you can't help but ham it up a bit, so without realising it you warn people a joke's coming AND imply it's gonna be a good 'un. When something just pops out it's that rug-pull effect. Bob Monkhouse was very good at this, e.g. 'I do things deliberately just to wind my wife up. I do things on purpose just to irriate her. In the morning I wake up, she hates that...'
PS No more wanking to Perry jokes. It's disrespectful to Melanie C.
